Description

A riveting journey into today' s U.S. military and CIA in a high-stakes battle against Chinese espionageas authentic as it gets." -- Gayle Lynds From James R. Hannibal -- a veteran combat pilot with Top Secret clearance from the U.S. government -- comes an electrifying high-tech thriller in the great tradition of Tom Clancy Over ten years ago, Air Force major Nick Baron was part of a failed special ops mission that left a B-2 stealth bomber at the bottom of the Persian Gulf. Now, leading his men -- the Triple Seven Chase team -- Baron must find the bomber and dispose of it for good before any unfriendly nation can steal the onboard technology for its own purposes. But as the team embarks on its mission, there are greater dangers waiting. When the CIA intercepts a call signal from an operative in China long thought dead, the Triple Seven Chase team is given the perilous task of retrieving the lone soldier from deep within the Chinese wilderness. There is only one plane for such a dangerous mission: the Shadow Catcher, a plane with capabilities beyond anything that has ever flown. What Baron and his men don' t know is that the enemy is already among them -- and that the Shadow Catcher itself may be the ultimate prize.

Professional reviews

"A great listen for fans of military fiction, this techno-thriller was written by a veteran combat pilot as a sequel to his first book, WRAITH. While it never lets up on the action, the production is marred by an uneven narration. At times, Luke Daniels gets lost in the different voices, using the same voice for multiple characters or different voices for the same character. The Chinese accents come across as stereotypical, and attempts at emulating electronic voice masking distort the volume and clarity. One passage, however, stands out: When Daniels reads the journal of a downed pilot, he drops the theatrics, and his voice is full of emotion and realism. The rest of the book deserves the same treatment. M.L.R. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
